Asset management process is not a one-dimensional practice, there are many routes one can take to achieve optimization. There are a large number of solutions, each offering something different, priced differently and needing different levels of internal commitment to make them successful. So the real questions is what does your organisation need?
Many companies are simply fire fighting and looking for tactical solutions to tactical problems. If you are heavily invested in one particular publisher then potentially a single consultancy might be able to provide the guidance and advice that you need. How about a more diverse software environment, how would one focussed consultancy help?
Technology is a key cornerstone in making an asset management solution successful, but who is going to operate it, validate that it is reporting correctly, and manage the data that goes in and out and what can be done for the software publishers that technology can’t manage.
